I have a problem that started yesterday, whenever I use the google toolbar to search for something, it takes like 5 minutes and then I am redirected to nexplore.com. Do you know why? I tried it on a different computer and it works fine. I ran the anti-virus and did not show me any infected files.
Thanks!

Your computer has been HiJacked and you have been infected by Malware.

Do not be surprised if your Anti-Virus/Malware software is not detecting this.

Get yourself a copy of hijackthis http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html

Visit http://www.techsupportforum.com/security-center/hijackthis-log-help/

And get the malware eradicated.

It is more serious than I thought. Now I have pop ups, and I cannot get to some sites. I bought Registry Mechanic, but after it cleaned the registry after reboot, the darn thing started again. I found a trojan now with my anti-virus (Troj_Vundo.cdv) and with Spybot I found virtumonde and virtumonde.dll. Any suggestions? Thanks.
